Transfigurations
2019
Montreal

What does it mean to bring a new life into the world at a moment when humanity is about to reach a threshold of irreparable climate breakdown? Through this photographic series I explore the tensions between celebration of life and environmental grief which are in the forefront of contemporary political conversations. This project is a meditation on change and transformation, a negotiation between despair and hope which shapes a new generation’s visions of the future. By contrasting majestic beauty with invisible violence, I aim to capture the troubling feelings of uncertainty, loss and denial. On a more abstract level, I am interested in using photography as a strategy to  investigate liminal spaces, transitions between worlds and thresholds of life in relation to body, nature and time.
